Fans warned over auction tickets; FA CUP: Police tell supporters to arrive early to avoid chaos at Ricoh showdown.

COVENTRY CITY fans buying and selling tickets for Saturday's FA Cup clash on auction website eBay run the risk of not being allowed into the ground.

After a number of tickets for the quarterfinal match appeared on the website, the club has ruled those trading the tickets may not be allowed into the match or future fixtures.

The selling of football match tickets for profit has been illegal since 2006.

When tickets for Saturday's game were spotted on the website, the club contacted eBay, who immediately removed them from sale.

In a statement Coventry City Football Club said it be "monitoring the situation" and will be working with eBay to remove any further tickets for the FA Cup tie.
